COULEE CITY- In an outstanding back and forth 8-man high school football game, the visiting Entiat Tigers fell to the defending state champion and #5 ACH Warriors 36 to 32 on Friday night, Sept. 9 at Coulee City. After falling behind 14 to 0 early in the second quarter, the Tigers roared back into the game on a 35-yard TD run by Landon Crutcher and a 35-yard TD pass from Crutcher to Christian Santos. Missed 2-point attempts, a struggle all evening for the Tigers, kept the ACH ahead 14 to 12. Following a 55-yard TD by the Warriors, Entiat scored on a 21-yard pass from Crutcher to Monico Robinson-Valdez for a halftime deficit of 22 to 18.
Despite losing the opening second half kick-off to an onside kick, another frustration on the evening for Entiat, the Tigers’ defense stiffened, held ACH on downs, and drove the length of the field for a short 1-yard TD plunge by Pedro Arias. Crutcher had a key 50 yard run during the drive that pushed Entiat into the lead at 24 to 22. ACH scored on a 45-yard pass to take the lead 30 to 24 at the end of the third quarter.
The fourth quarter was basically a toe-to-toe defensive struggle until ACH finally pushed over a TD on a 6-yard run with 40 seconds remaining. Not to be outdone, the Tigers quickly responded within 20 seconds on a scoring pass from Crutcher to Santos of 45 yards. A pass to Robinson-Valdez completed the only successful extra point try of the night for the Tigers.
Landon Crutcher finished the night with 13 carries for 136 yards and a touchdown rushing, while completing 10 of 21 passes for 174 yards and 3 touchdowns through the air.  Christian Santos had 3 receptions for 96 yards and 2 TDs, while Monico Valadez-Robinson caught 6 balls for 75 yards and a TD.  
Defensively, Crutcher was in on 16 total tackles, including 2.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, and a fumble recovery.  Arthuro Delgado was also a defensive standout in his first game this year for the Tigers, totaling 11 tackles, and 1.5 sacks.  Defensive End Braedyn Brumback was also in on 12 tackles, including 2.5 tfls, and 1 sack for the Tigers.
The Tigers traveled to Ritzville to play pre-season #6 Pomeroy on Thursday, Sept. 15, at 6 p.m.
